Our Nursery reflects the nurturing and supportive learning environment of our current Early Years provision where your child will grow and thrive.
Our Busy Blog
The nursery team consists of Mrs Gilkes (Nursery Lead), Mrs Tortora , Miss Sherlock, Mrs Iaciofano and Mrs Smith Manze.
All members of the team work hard to offer a nurturing and supportive learning environment for the children to thrive and grow. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum with an emphasis on promoting the characteristics of effective learning. This approach fosters a love of learning and provides challenge linked closely to developmentally age appropriate experience. We strive to create an environment where the children feel confident to explore and discover new things. As a Nursery, we understand that all children are unique and understand the importance of following their individual interests.
At Nursery we have had a busy couple of weeks focusing on spring. The children have been planting seeds, sunflowers, French beans and runner beans. We talked about what the seeds need to grow and the children have been encouraged to take on the responsibility of remembering to water them. We are excited to see some of the seeds growing already! We are learning about minibeasts, particularly caterpillars and butterflies. Following on from reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar the children have been inspired to create playdough butterflies and symmetrical butterflies using different coloured paints. For some of the children in Nursery it was a very special celebration at the weekend, Eid. In Nursery we watched a special assembly about Eid and one of our parents bought in some yummy food for us all to share!
